With respect to the review article on Laser-Assisted Liposuction published by Dr. Pereira-Netto et al. in January 2018, I would like to share my opinion based on the experience I have with the use of laser in liposculpture treatment on more than 1000 patients and on the articles selected for this publication. I have been applying laser in liposuction since 2007 using many wavelengths such as 980 nm and 1440 nm, both with affinity and absorption for water , and in the last 7 years with a new wavelength (1210 nm) with affinity/absorption for lipid-rich tissues. This 1210-nm laser used on 800 cases also shows an advantage for the preservation of adipose tissue which has been documented and published since 2013 [2, 3].
